English? Spanish? German? What Languages Should We Teach?

Unit 8: Emigrants - Immigrants - Refugees...all are welcome here!
Lesson 2 of 5

Objective: SWBAT...listen and comment on a oral presentation on emigration and then use that information and the text "Where the River Runs" to debate and support what language we should teach in American schools.

Big Idea: Families come from all parts of the world to America either by choice or by force. How do we decide which languages to teach in our schools?
